More from the Train Depot

I promised more of this shoot and I am definitely going to share. 

Here are a very cool brother and sister that attend my church.  They agreed to be my volunteer models.  Both of them are very musically talented and this could not have gone better.  And I have to admit, they were way easier to shoot than disagreeable toddlers.  ;)

And here is my classic struggle black and white or color.  Both show the story and give a feel of the location.  I think it is just a style preference for this particular photo.  So here are both.  That should please the color junkies and b&w junkies along with the fence riders like me.  {For the record I prefer the color of this one. }

I originally took this shot and had to completely blow the background to get my subject metered correctly (no, I still haven’t experimented with my off-camera flash). So everything off of the brick was so bright white that it looked cropped and put on a white background.  I asked for advice on Clickin Moms and a woman on the forum suggested I return to the depot and take a shot metered for the background.  Duh!  I felt so ding dong-y for not thinking of that.

These photos are actually composites.  The tracks, grass, and parking lots are merged on from a separate image.  Everything from the curb and over (everything on the bricks) is from one shot by itself.  I just used a layer mask to merge the two parts.

  1. I think the merging worked out really well. I love the black and white one myself. It has a lovely atmosphere to it.

  8. Both are beautiful shots. I actually lean towards the b & w here as it draws your attention to their faces. I find the colour on the base of the columns distracting in the colour version.
